Rattus Rattus Knockus Sleepus
« on: August 30, 2017, 04:26:15 AM »
3:40 AM can't sleep, so out the backdoor I go, Sumatra in hand. Set upon tripod and wait pointing at the main bait station 25 yards away, for the two fat sibling Rattus Rattus who had just been tag teaming the peanut butter. I waited ten minutes and they didn't show.

Hmm turned my attention to the top of the hill bait station and saw a teen Rattus leisurely munching. LED was pretty dim at this point but I took the shot. Hit him a bit toward the pooping end but it didn't last but a few seconds. This shot is fairly difficult as I'm shooting up my pretty steep back yard 35 yards away. But I made up for a miss around mid night. Patience Grasshopper!
